Beauty lurks in quiet streets.
Monet Would Be Jealous
While walking a friend home the other afternoon, we learned more about our little neighbourhood: who lived where, which kids (now retired) had grown up together, etc.
As part of the lecture, we were invited to view a charming feature in a local yard: this beautiful lily pond.
In addition to lilies any impressionist painter would have envied, the small pond features some happy fish.
The changing seasons bring remarkable natural things to light in this small town. There's a surprise around every corner, and lurking in every back garden of these 100-year-old houses.
Look around your neighbourhood, be it urban, suburban, small-town, or wild countryside. Is your settlement older or younger than this town, which was settled in the 1840s? What's hiding among the ruins, behind the car park, outside that new high-rise? We seriously want to know. And we want the pics!
